h-alpha disk, December 28th, 2020

Post by LTHB » Mon Dec 28, 2020 10:35 pm

Today one five minute gap in the cloud cover allowed for one full disk video.

Image

This image is 1.5x drizzled (undrizzled version here: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/507 ... 4da4_o.jpg ).

Having a little time, but no more videos to process, I tried how to bring out the proms more, well, prominently, taking inspiration from Eric's, Brian's and Rainer's posts.

Kind regards,

Frank

Thanks everybody for the kind words! (And for the SPoD... - I would have cleaned up the grey background on the left-hand side bit, if I had expected that...)

Alexandra, I'm in Hamburg, Germany, usually not the place to get solar images over the winter, but this year we've happily seen a few short gaps in the cloud cover. I hope for more...

Frank
